Potential Puzzle: Buying every card
« on: June 14, 2011, 01:21:29 pm »

In a solitaire game using the stardard pile-size of a non-Colony 2-player game, what is the quickest way to buy (or gain) all but one of each Kingdom card, Treasure card, Victory card, and Curse?  You can, of course, determine the Kingdom cards, and assume perfect draw luck.

I don't think we necessarily need a solution to get people's contributions for legal answers.  In fact, it might be fun to share solutions outright and see if people can improve on them.  Up to you guys.

I'll submit something after work.

Do you have to buy them, or does gaining cards qualify?

Do they have to remain in your deck, or can you trash them? If the latter, I see watchtower being in every suggested solution.

Ah, sorry, yeah.  "Gaining" them is fine.

Do they have to remain in your deck, or can you trash them? If the latter, I see watchtower being in every suggested solution.

Great point... as it's just for fun anyway, I suppose people could write a solution either way.

I'm willing to bet most new puzzles are solvable using the ironworks/kc/bridge/nobles solution from puzzle 1.

It feels good to have all these red crosses... (I did this a long time ago and didn't try to optimize it, you can do way better)

+1000 points in 10 turns and almost the entire board gone (some curses and coppers left). No perfect shuffle!

Obviously not a solution to this puzzle, but this was fun ;D
